Don't have time to write a long reply like I did last time, maybe later, but quickly, I would highly recommend the Alligator>Caution from 12/12/69. It's one of my favorites. I think you get 3 heavy fans from Jerry in that one. Three!

Overall late 69 is a bit of a slump, though. Aside from a couple, like 11/2, 11/8, etc.

Agreed on the 12/12 Alligator > Caution. That one plays out very nicely. If I'm remembering the right version I think there is at least one section where Garcia lays out and there is a nice stretch of Phil and Bob jamming with the drummers keeping that percolating groove rolling along. Reminiscent of the beginning of The Eleven on Live/Dead.

Oh yes, 12/12/69 and 11/8/69 are the BIG Cautions of late '69, top recommendations....but then, those were two shows tim_oz said he was already familiar with, so I thought I'd toss a couple more obscure Alligators his way!
